Danai Gurira, Lupita Nyong’o and Letitia Wright Graces Cover of ELLE UK's November Issue

Introducing The Cover Stars of ELLE UK's November Issue, Danai Gurira, Lupita Nyong’o and Letitia Wright

Although the trio share similarities in their confidence and poise, the differences in their personalities are clear. Gurira is meticulous and methodical; Nyong’o frank and thoughtful; Wright understated and warm. And all are completely in awe of one another, even after so many years of working together.

"You hope that Black Panther has opened folks’ eyes to the understanding that the world can receive African characters. It’s not a shocking thing, and they can be very resonant with people"

Danai Gurira

"Different seasons require different types of friends, and this season we didn’t need colleagues: we needed friends. We needed comfort and a great support system."

Letitia Wright

"We get to see them be fully human. That’s something that, as Black women, we are often not afforded on-screen. And there are so many female characters. All too often in these movies, there’s a token one or two. Here, you’re seeing a community."

Lupita Nyong'o
